This course is intended for EMC personnel, customers, and partners who configure and manage a Symmetrix in a Windows or UNIX environment.
Learn to configure a Symmetrix and prepare it for host access in this course that emphasizes use of the Symmetrix Command Line interface (SYMCLI) and managing configuration changes with the Symmetrix Management Console (SMC) GUI.You will cover different types of devices and their functions, and you'll learn to create, map, and mask devices. You will learn to set Symmetrix metrics and RDF group attributes, and you will learn about newer features, such as Virtual Provisioning and Dynamic LUN migration. Lab exercises will cover operational details of all topics.
